‘Sensual and feminine with a hint of whimsy...'
Abigail’s debut album, Lay Me Down , is a collection of finely crafted songs that capture the essence of lyricists such as Elvis Costello and the power and purity of singers like Stevie Nicks. Her songwriting takes personal themes from her life on the Dingle Peninsula and transforms them into beguiling stories that touches the soul.
From touring with her band in Ireland and the UK to playing Other Voices and gigging in New Zealand, Abigail brings a powerful energy to her performances which audiences always passionately respond to.
“Nothing is ordinary in this work, from the amusing and growing beginning of Lay Me Down to the deep sweetness of The Growing Season. From the country flavoured Tell Me A Story to the delicate hymn to freedom that is Romantic Traveller. What makes this album precious is the elegant beauty of each song that can be naturally found in the best tracks of Leonard Cohen and Abigail has absolutely one of the best voices of the moment.”
